Engineers and technicians at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston are testing the spacesuit astronauts will wear in the agency’s Orion spacecraft on trips to deep space.

The Vacuum Pressure Integrated Suit Test verifies enhancements to the spacesuit that astronauts will wear during deep space missions aboard the Orion spacecraft.

During this test, the suit is connected to life support systems and then air is removed from Johnson’s 11-foot thermal vacuum chamber to evaluate the performance of the suits in conditions similar to a spacecraft.
